  1. So last night I was playing some GTA V when my computer suddenly died and my room fell dead silent. Confused, I looked to said computer and saw a couple nasty lookin sparks come out from the power connector on my graphics card. Now I'm left with a dead 1070 and must buy a new card. At least it gives me an excuse to upgrade, right? Anyway, as I woke up this morning, I was thinking about what happened and it occured to me that the culprit could've been my PSU. It's an old EVGA unit, probably 5-6 yrs old and I bought it refurbished (had no idea, this is why you read product descriptio
  2. Might do that one since EVGA is pretty reputable. Thanks!
  3. So, my graphics card died this past Sunday. I just found out today that my water cooler leaked gross oily blue fluid all over my graphics card. Fuck me. Anyway, I need a new 1070, I previously had a Gigabyte 1070 Xtreme Gaming, which always ran at 2030 MHz boost while staying really cool and totally inaudible. I'd just buy a new one but that's $460 I don't have to spend in a situation like this. I need something less than $460 (preferably under $420) that is close to 1.8 GHz boost and has neutral-ish colors (not the red MSI Gaming 8G). EDIT: If it wasn't obvious, it nee
  4. Firstly, I'd like to point out that if you need to come here for advise with no sense of direction yet, you probably shouldn't be working with a $560K budget and a "client". This is what I've put together for you for fairly cheap: That's RED's own configurator thingy.
  5. I swear to the holy spirits that I don't believe in that Brita water tastes better than tap, at least the tap at my home, and if nothing else the Brita is good cold water pitcher.
  6. To answer your question, my father. He does all the shopping since he does all the cooking. Also, my family and I have a genetic hatred for walmart. We will probably never shop for a corporation as evil as they are.
  7. roight, gotcha i like the way you think, but special water costs $20 from amazon, so I'll hit up newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA9AB3T28099
  8. Well the i5 because games won't use multiple cores so the hyperthreading will be useless as far as you'll be conserned. As far as the PSU, witness:
  9. Get a 6600 (cpu) and better PSU, something 80+ Gold will be pretty good quality if you're not overclocking. That and a 480 should fit nicely down the line.
  10. again, i dont go out Kappa but shouldn't bottled water not have bacteria and shit in it? but my "cheap" cooler didnt come with a kill coil and it hasnt grown anything, just collected something from the metals, probs flux if Jay had a say
  11. but then my parents will come home and think i'm running a meth lab like no thanks, but pretty good idea... does it matter if the pan I'm using is metal or if I'm cooking pasta in said water/pan? Could probs get a distilling apparatus from my chem teacher... who tf gets water delivered??
  12. But conductive doesn't matter when the loop doesn't leak what a ripoff tho
  13. Right so it's been a while since I was here, but let's get down to business. Now that we have that out the way, my water cooling AIO is super turning blue. Now, since it's Swiftech and therefore doesn't suck, if I were to hypotetically drain it and put new water in it, can I use bottled water that's been through a Brita? I'd go out and buy some water, but seeing as I don't actually go out (and buying filtered water is a rip off), is it catostrophic if I just kinda pour some Stop and Shop Acadia water through my brita and call it good enough? +
